CCGHR Principles for Global Health Research
Health inequities are often avoidable consequences of actions and contexts that disproportionately advantage some groups over others. These negatively affect human rights, including the right to health. Global health research aims to promote greater equity worldwide. The principles of Authentic Partnering, Inclusion, Shared Benefits, Commitment to the Future, Responsiveness to Causes of Inequities, and Humility encourage researchers and others involved to adopt more ethical and equitable forms of global health research. These principles were developed through a multi-phase, dialogue-based research process in response to a call for action from researchers, funders, and administrators who indicated a need for greater governance to support global health research.
